After you create a host profile, you can manage the profile by attaching a profile to a particular host or cluster and then applying that profile to the host or cluster.

You can associate a profile and a host or cluster either by attaching the profile to the host or cluster, or by attaching the host or cluster to the profile. You can then apply the profile to the host or cluster.

Note

A host profile must have a valid reference host associated with it before you can manage the profile.
